Bike tour to Blanes and Botanic Garden

Starting in Calella we will pedal along the beach road breathing the fresh Mediterranean air before heading through the fields to Blanes, a fishing town on the Costa Brava. We will visit the the Marimurtra Botanical Garden, one of the most beautiful gardens on the Mediterranean. At the top of steep cliffs running along the sea, we can enjoy one of the most spectacular panoramic views over the coastline and get to know more than four thousand plant species, most of them exotic ones, as well as several specimens that are extraordinary because of their age and size.

Visit to a military fortress and cookery workshop

Hostalric is a small village located inland and is listed as of National Interest for its Culture. The town is conserved in almost its entirety and houses one of the most remarkable Catalan Medieval monumental complexes. It is presided over by an imposing 18th Century military fortress.

After the walk we will enjoy a fun and tasty cookery workshop. Together with a chef we will learn how to cook the best paella and of course we will get to sample some!

Walk in Montnegre Nature Park

We will enjoy a walk in the nature park of Montnegre. Discover the Mediterranean forest and enjoy the views from the top. We will end the walk in a restaurant to enjoy a typical Catalan lunch. Walking shoes and sport clothes are recommended we will be walking approximately 8km.

Walking to Sant Pol and Torretes look out point

Departing from the hotel we will climb up to Calella’s “Torretes” to enjoy a magnificent view of the Barcelona Coast and in a clear day we can see Barcelona’ s silhouette. We continue to Sant Pol de Mar a small and typical coastal village. After working up an appetite we will take the train back to Calella for some Iberian Ham tasting. There are thousands of reasons to sample a good ham: its intense flavour, its pleasant texture, its enticing aroma, the sensation it produces on the palate…

Yoga on the beach

Today we start the day at the beach and with the first rays of sun and the Mediterranean breeze we will do some gentle yoga exercises. Later, we enjoy a healthy snack on the beach side.
